If you pull at a chain, it always breaks at the weakest link. Wherever your genetic weak link is – your heart, your brain, your liver, your kidneys – that’s where the chain is prone to break. Each person has a different "weak link or links" which could be located in any of the body's cells, tissues, or systems. Autoimmune diseases can be preventable. To avoid autoimmune disease, you must avoid your specific triggers. As clinicians we hunt for these triggers and cross them off the list one by one.
What are some of these potential triggers to avoid?
Poor lifestyle factors
Medications, Antibiotics, Acid blockers
Collectively, these cause inflammation and tissue destruction. Each trigger builds upon the other weakening your body. Life is riddled with triggers. Each one adding up until the proverbial "straw that breaks the camel's back" All possibilities are inherent in the Human Genome, it is what we wash over these genes, the messages we send to our genes that determine if and when we express the diseased state. Our goal is to identify, eliminate, and avoid as many of them as possible to help support your body’s defense mechanisms and physiology, while building resilience and health.
